Dr Mark McKenna Offers An Innovative Solution To Help People Who Don’t Have The Time For Elective Cosmetic Procedures

Dr. Mark McKenna says that since his father was is a doctor he learned all about the world from a young age. He didn’t know what he wanted to do once he was older but he didn’t think to be a doctor himself was an option. He viewed the medical profession as too staid and regimented with no room for someone like him. He felt that he was a maverick and you couldn’t be that way as a doctor. As he eventually learned this was wrong and innovation is welcome in any industry.

He eventually earned his medical degree at Tulane University Medical School. Dr. Mark McKenna loved real estate, though, and so, along with his dad, they started a New Orleans development firm in that industry. They purchased a lot of properties and the business was going well until Hurricane Katrina hit, destroying a lot of their properties. He had already grown weary of that industry’s stresses and roller-coaster-like movements so he decided to wind that business down.

After reflecting on what he wanted to do next Dr. Mark McKenna says that he developed a passion for medicine. He moved to Atlanta and wanted to create a new company that would upend the elective healthcare industry. He also spotted the trend of more people, both men and women, wanting to have elective cosmetic surgery performed on them.

He founded OVME in Atlanta’s trendiest neighborhood. His company offers surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. They also perform Botox, dermabrasions, and other noninvasive procedures. Dr. Mark McKenna says that each patient is treated as an individual. He and his staff deliver top-notch customer service which revolves around truly listening to what each customer is seeking from him.

People’s schedules today are hectic with too much to do and not enough time to do it. Dr. Mark McKenna says that the team at OVME recognizes this and is looking at coming up with innovative solutions to solve this time-crunch. He might even start offering noninvasive procedures in his customer’s homes and offices. This would benefit his company by increasing revenues while also benefitting customers who want a procedure done but can’t find the time to do it.
